Hungarian folk song with translation by Mrrzy
ESIK ESŐ, DE NEM ÁZOK (Hungarian)

Esik eső, de nem ázok,
Cseresznyefa alá állok.
Az alatt is azért állok,
Arra járnak el a lányok.

Beállt Pista katonának,
Ott se volt jó a butának,
Mert nem tudott szalutálni,
Csak a lányok után járni.
IT'S RAINING BUT I AM NOT GETTING WET

It's raining but I am not getting wet
I go stand under a cherry tree
I am also under it because
That's where the girls walk

Pista went for a soldier [joined up]
But it wasn't good there for the idiot
Because he couldn't salute
But just walk after the girls
Song collected by László Lajtha (1892 - 1963) in Cserépváralja, Borsod county. István Tóth Nógrádi recording.
